Material from workshop on lead in hunting and sports shooting now available

ECHA has published a summary and presentations of the stakeholder workshop related to the use of lead in hunting and shooting.

The workshop was organised in February 2020 and the outcome will feed into ECHA’s investigation, the results of which can be expected in autumn. ECHA’s investigation is looking at the risks posed by the use of lead in ammunition to the environment and human health and the potential for substitution with less hazardous materials.
